Volunteer of the Week
Barbara Brooks


In the words of Katy McClure, the Volunteer Program Manager at Paws4ever, Barbara Brooks “shines like a star.”  Though she may seem quiet and unassuming, Barbara brings wisdom, courage, and energy to everything she does, whether it’s training dogs or responding to a crisis.  “When the going gets tough,” says Katy, “Barbara is calm, focused, and she gets it done.”  Barbara has won the respect of the Paws4ever staff; they know that she’ll do whatever it takes to alleviate the suffering of lost and abandoned dogs. 

She has a keen eye for animal behavior, and she’s equally adept at understanding people: she inspires the people she volunteers with and is an expert at working efficiently within an organization.  Barbara brings both calm reason and rugged determination to the work she does for Paws4ever, and the staff is grateful to have her.  Thank you, Barbara, for your leadership, wisdom and compassion!
